2018 Ford F-150 Diesel Power Stroke

Anticipated 2018 Ford F-150 Diesel Is Out And We Have The Numbers

Three Liter Diesel For Otherearthly Torque And Exceptional Efficiency

Published January 8, 2018

It has happened. Ford announced that the F-150 truck will become available with a diesel engine last year and now we have all the details that matter. Meet the 2018 Ford F-150 Diesel.

Fitted with a 3.0-liter Power Stroke diesel engine, you will be able to order it after mid-January in a two-wheel drive or a four-wheel drive version. Diesel F-150 is available on the Lariat, the King Ranch and the Platinum SuperCrew trucks with 5.5-foot or 6.5-foot bed. Also, the three-liter diesel can be mated with a SuperCab and its 6.5-foot bed.

Now as for the most important numbers about the diesel mill

  • 3.0-liter Power Stroke® diesel engine,
  • 250hp,
  • 440 lb.-ft. of torque,
  • a towing capacity of 11,400 pounds,
  • a payload capacity of 2,020 pounds,
  • EPA-estimated 30 mpg on the highway,
  • a standard 10-speed automatic transmission,

“For every truck owner who wants strong fuel economy while they tow and haul, we offer a new 3.0-liter Power Stroke® V6 engine that dreams are made of,” said Dave Filipe, vice president of global powertrain engineering. “The more you tow and the longer you haul, the more you’ll appreciate its class-leading towing and payload capacity and how efficient it is at the pump.”

Specially Adopted 10-speed Transmission For The Diesel

Obviously, Ford engineers had to weigh out and achieve an optimum balance between fuel efficiency, power, low-end torque and high-end torque. Interestingly enough, Ford crucially modified a 10-speed automatic. Ford says it “maximizes shift points and gear ratios to optimize power, low-rpm torque and efficiency”.

Ford rigged it with the auto Start-Stop technology as well – of course, to ensure the best fuel efficiency possible.

“We know that competing diesels with electric cooling fans have to dial back on power under extreme heat and altitude, so we decided on a viscous-controlled mechanical fan that has the capacity to move much more air across the radiator and intercooler in extreme conditions,” said David Ives, Ford diesel engine technical specialist. “This gives F-150 Power Stroke owners more power and more passing capability in harsh conditions.”

With the three-liter diesel, the 2018 Ford F-150 will be available with six engines in total.

I do not have spare time. All there is is car time. 12 years and counting. I am a Central European gearhead, but you are probably thinking - aaa a disposable Borg drone! Well, actually, I like to dress up like James Bond too. The only thing I need to be him is an Aston Martin (and I love DBS more than DB5 because, reasons). That's something I guess.
